  • This is important because without a damage assessment, we cannot determine if the state qualifies for disaster assistance. Already nearly 900 people have reported their damage, but we need to hear from anyone who had damage starting with Monday’s severe weather.
  • Whether there was minor damage or more than a foot of water, the state needs people to report it to GOHSEP so that we can use this information to plan any request to the federal government for disaster assistance.
  • Federal relief is not guaranteed, and it is too early to know if any aid will be available, but the first step of the recovery process is assessing the level of damage across the state. 
  • Reporting to does not replace reporting damage to a person’s insurance agency. Anyone impacted by the severe weather should fill out the survey to report damage. This includes structures only, not vehicles.
  • The survey is voluntary and does not guarantee any federal disaster relief assistance. It will be beneficial in assisting with the damage assessment process in Louisiana related to this event. To fill out the report, visit: People can call 211 if they need assistance filling out the survey.
